Hi Brent,

Thanks. But what about TexureMapper implementation from QT guys..?. I
understood that TexureMapper uses GraphicsContext based software path to
achieve Accelerated composition.
Is it possible to implement Accelerated Composition using cairo alone..?
Because cairo can have accelerated beckend right..? Is there any DirectFB
based Accelerated composition possible..? Any clues..?
